What is there to do?

Head out for a day on the historic Newport bayfront for your next family day out, at Mariner Square!

Here, you can explore three amazing attractions for the family, with Oregon Undersea Gardens, The Wax Works and Ripley's Believe It Or Not all calling it home!

Let's start with the Oregon Undersea Gardens! Kids can go deep in this underwater world in a magic submarine, where they can explore the largest collection or local marine life anywhere!

There are numerous exhibits that teach kids all about the creatures of the ocean, from all across the planet! You might even come face to face with some strange creatures you had never heard of before!

Then of course, the weird and wonderful in Ripley's Believe It Or Not, where you can see collections from all around the world of some very strange sights, including shrunken heads and the magic harp! Prepare to be amazed!

Initially started as a collection of oddities found during travel, it's now become a place where you can see some pretty strange things - but are they true? That's what you have to find out for yourselves!

Last but not least, why not rub shoulders with Spock, or Marilyn Monroe, or Frankenstein! The Wax Works has hundreds of sculptures that can see you rubbing shoulders with Hollywood legends, sci-fi creatures, or even hobbits!

See your favorite stars up close and personal, but don't forget to get those phones out for those selfies!

As you walk around, try and work out how they get the figures so lifelike - the answer just might surprise you!

A great way to spend the day with three fun attractions in the one place. The question is, what ones will you want to keep going back to!

Amazing family fun in one of the prettiest cities in the USA!
